Microgreens Seeds

Embrace the power of microgreens and discover a world of culinary and health benefits right in your own home. Microgreens are the tiny, but mighty, seedlings of various vegetables, herbs, and flowers harvested just after germination. Unlike traditional sprouts, microgreens boast true leaves packed with a concentrated dose of nutrients. Growing our non-GMO, heirloom, microgreen seeds is not only simple and rewarding, but it also offers numerous advantages that make them a worthwhile addition to any kitchen or home garden.

One of the most appealing aspects of microgreens is their ease of cultivation. Unlike full-grown vegetables, microgreens thrive in small spaces and require minimal maintenance, making them ideal for urban dwellers and those with limited outdoor space. A simple container garden on a sunny windowsill is all you need to cultivate a steady supply of these nutrient-rich greens. Furthermore, microgreens have a fast turnaround time, typically ready for harvest within 7 to 14 days after planting, providing you with a quick and consistent source of fresh greens throughout the year.

Beyond their convenience, microgreens pack a powerful nutritional punch. Studies suggest that they can contain up to 40 times more vitamins and minerals compared to their mature counterparts. This concentrated dose of nutrients makes them a valuable addition to any diet, offering a natural way to boost your intake of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Additionally, microgreens come in a wide variety of flavors and textures, adding a unique and exciting element to your culinary creations. From adding a peppery kick to sandwiches to enhancing salads with a burst of flavor, microgreens offer endless possibilities for elevating your home cooking adventures.

How to Grow Microgreens

The general process of growing microgreens is fairly simple. The steps are as follows:

  1. Pre-soak seeds as specified on the packet
  2. Sprinkle seeds over a tray with a 1/2" to 1" layer of moist potting mix. Press into the soil to ensure good contact.
  3. Mist seeds with a spray bottle and cover to maintain moisture and block out light.
  4. Keep seeds covered for the blackout period. Setting the tray inside a cupboard works well. Check seeds during the blackout period and mist as needed to keep seeds moist.
  5. When the microgreens are a few inches tall or begin to live the cover, expose
    them to light, allowing the seedlings to develop and grow.
  6. When microgreens look ready, harvest with a pair of scissors and enjoy!
